Healthy food for people who don't eat fruits or vegetables? Here's your sign (list)

Alright, so it's no secret that I eat like a 5 year old.  I tell everyone, I run and workout so I can eat like crap - which I do.  Problem is... getting old sucks lol

So, I set out to compile a short list of the healthiest version of foods that most of us (me) eat anyway and intentionally tried to eliminate fruits and veggies from the list (because... those are a no brainer, you don't need a list to tell you to eat those).  
I also included snacks

What's 'healthy' you ask?  Glad you did, because that word gets thrown around all the time and best I can tell, people think they can make it mean anything they want.  For this list, I was going for traditional health measures:  lower fat, lower calories, lower carbs, somewhat lower sodium, give preference to protein and fiber, and try for the absolute fewest ingredients as possible.
Fewest ingredients as possible AND ingredients that I can pronounce and/or have any freaking idea what they are or where they come from.

Or butter ingredients could be:  Ingredients: Sweet Cream, Salt.

Straight forward enough....

Alright, here we go:

  • Greek yogurt (take a look - I prefer Oikos)
  • Chester’s Puff Corn
  • Pop chips
  • Kettle Brand baked sea salt potato chips
  • Salmon
  • Boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 97% lean ground beef
  • Lean Sirloin
  • Canadian Bacon
  • Pork Chops
  • Smuckers Natural PB
  • Brown Rice (Brown Jasmine Rice? Sounds good-haven't found it)
  • Ezekiel 4:9 Bread (they make sandwich bread, cinnamon raisin bread, & buns)
  • Applegate Farms The Great uncured beef hotdogs
  • Emeril’s Home-style Marinara spaghetti sauce
  • Barilla Whole Grain (or Barilla Plus+) Pasta 
  • 100% Cranberry juice
  • Land O Lakes Butter with Olive Oil (tub)
  • Land O Lakes Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt (stick)
Got some favorites?  What are yours?
